NFL Player Hoping to Rehabilitate Foot Without an Operation
When athletes sustain injuries to the sesamoid bones in their feet, they usually have to get surgery on them. But when linebacker Jon Beason fractured a sesamoid in his right foot last month, his doctor suggested he try something different. He convinced the Giants player to go with a non-surgical form of rehabilitation that would let the fracture heal by itself.
Beason’s foot was enclosed in a cast designed to hold his sesamoid bones securely in place. His doctor believes that the blood flow around the bone will facilitate a natural repair of the break. Although details about Beason’s recovery are being withheld from the public, many analysts assume that he should be getting the cast off soon.
Injured athletes often have to go through foot rehabilitation before they can return to the field. If you’re an athlete who needs assistance rehabilitating from damage to a lower extremity, visit Dr. Greg Khaimov, DPM of Foot and Ankle Center of Fort Lee, LLC. Dr. Khaimov can provide you with professional treatment and advice as you work through the recovery process.
Foot Rehabilitation for Athletes
Injured athletes are always looking for better, faster ways to aid their recovery and get back to the sport they love. To do this, podiatrists and physical therapists are often consulted so the injured athlete can get back onto the field as soon as possible. But rehabbing an injury is just as serious as the injury itself, and going through the motions of physical therapy or rehabilitation is a necessary process to keeping that injury at bay.
Sports Therapist or Physical Therapist?
If an athlete gets a foot injury, it is essential to receive foot rehabilitation to ensure proper healing. It is important for an athlete to become healed properly because if they attempt to get back into their game before they are physically well, they could re-aggravate the original injury or even suffer a new one due to their weakened state.
Physical Therapy Gives Hope
Physical therapy helps to keep athletes as active as they are physically capable.
